Synopses & Reviews
This book, a companion to the authors' , describes therapy with a number of patients who had defeated numerous clinicians and become "veterans" of the system. Using a flexible approach that emphasizes relationship, hope, and a plan for the future, the authors turn these cases around, setting the clients on a path of independence and health.
A new approach, based on a five-year clinical study for clients who have not responded to treatment. Riveting, full-length cases clearly illustrate this new approach and should convince readers that successful treatment can occur when therapy is accommodated to the client's frame of reference and the client's theory of change is honored.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 209-214) and index.
